  • Vintage Campari Event Trade London

    5th December, 2019

    Trade, Soho, London 

    Campari UK was kind enough to ask Old Spirits Company to conduct a tasting of vintage Campari from the 1960s, 70s and 80s at Soho industry members' club Trade.  Preceded by a succinct history of the Negroni by Italian Spirits Specialist Joe St. Clair-Ford, our presentation captivated attendees, who preferred the 1960s liquid, and were treated to a surprise sampling of the now defunct clear, viscous raspberry-flavoured liqueur Campari Cordial, made from 1892-92.  Our hands are still sticky!
